We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in
its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong
to our closest family or friends.
If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the
people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call.
Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person
in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency)
The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of
contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority
of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person
or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name
"ICE" ( In Case Of Emergency).
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the
scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they
didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good
idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an
emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be
able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have
stored as "ICE."
For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great
idea that will make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our mobile
phones today!!! !
forward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before everybody will
know about this it really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest.
will speak for you when you are not able to!!
